I believe Doyle Street Cohousing in Albany, CA where Chuck and Katie Durrett once lived is a similar size but also in an urban environment. Also New Brighton Cohousing in Santa Cruz County, CA is small. Usually the trade off is more intimacy in a small community vs maybe not enough folk to do the necessary work.
